Sony’s entry-level Jelly Bean smartphone, the Xperia E, which boasts a 3.5-inch HVGA display and a 1GHz processor, is now up for grabs in the UK for £130 unlocked.
Sony has posted up an experimental Firefox OS build for Xperia E owners to test out on its Mobile Developer Blog. The ROM, unfortunately, can not serve as a daily driver in its current state though.
The Sony Xperia E Dual, the dual SIM smartphone with so-so specs that was launched back in December, is now up for pre-order in America.
Still waiting to get your mitts on the Sony Xperia E? Here’s the latest on the mini phone’s availability in the UK.
The much awaited Xperia Z release might be only days away, but before making the flagship 5-incher available Sony has decided it’s time to throw a juicy bone to the budget-oriented folk.
Though Sony already has a wide array of choices for budget-focused Android enthusiasts, the recently unveiled Xperia E managed to grab our attention with two tiny details – its low, low price, but mostly the running of 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
Sony clearly thinks that there’s not enough entry-level Xperia smartphones in the market today, which explains why the Japanese manufacturer recently introduced the Xperia E and Xperia E Dual. Packing marginally better specs than their closest predecessors, the pricing details for the two budget phones have been revealed by Sony Mobile Germany.
Sony’s Xperia naming frenzy is far from completion and, with enough unused letters of the alphabet to last the company at least one more year, it’s now time to meet the E. Officially meet that is, because the low-ender already got an unofficial introduction back in October.
We’ve seen a number of high-end Sony phones go on sale lately, the mid-range offering is more than generous too, while the entry-level line is filled with budget-friendly devices. That’s the way things are set to be for the Xperia makers in the near future as well, with unreleased high, but also low-end phones making the rumor rounds.
